Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9921503A2] A dental tube and post combination is disclosed, wherein the dent al tube (36) and post (64) have, respectively, a mating projection (48) and indentation (68) so that when the mating portions are fitted together, it is unlikely that the tube and post will be inadvertently separated from one other. However, the combined tube and post combination of the present invention can be readily separated by a dental technician using conventional dental tools. Moreover, each of the tube and post portions of the present invention can be used with conventional posts and tubes without compatibility concerns.
